. >>> the obamas joining more than 50 world leaders paying tribute to nelson mandela tomorrow. president george w. bush and his wife will join them, president clinton and jimmy carter attending also. a big test for south africa's government as it plans the memorial expecting 94,000 people at fnb stadium where they had the world cup in 2010 and another 100,000 plus expected outside at overflow areas around the city. many details were worked out well in advance. politico is reporting the last-minute services are pretty daunting. concerns from the motorcade route to his safety once inside. meanwhile, sunday marked an official day of prayer across south africa. but in churches the scene was as much celebratory as mournful. other parts of the world, ukraine's president facing major unrest and a 48-hour deadline threat to disband his government. anti-government protesters yesterday toppled the stature of lenin. he's, of course, the founder of the soviet union, demonstrators took turns attacking the statue with hammers sort of reminiscent of the berlin wall falling in the early '90s and smashed it to pi
. >> but this whole mandela, passing of nelson mandela, we focused on what actually, bono and people that had been obsessed on african, all the aids workers there. george w. bush did more for africa than any president in the country's history. it's remarkable. >> yeah. it's a true legacy for george w. bush, saved millions of people. saved the continent. >> i want to play eric cantor piece. eric is a friend of mine. no rand paul. rand paul. here's what rand paul said. we're talking about extending unemployment benefits. mika and i have been going back and forth a little bit. i don't think this is the smartest thing in the world to say. might be a little harsh. for a party -- >> i do support unemployment benefits for the 26 weeks that they are paid for. if you extend it beyond that you do a disservice to these workers. there was a study that came out a few months ago and it said if you have a worker that's been unemployed for four weeks and on unemployment insurance and one on 99 weeks which would you hire? every employer nearly 100% said they will always hire the person whose been out of work four

about the loss, less than just two days ago of nelson mandela, do you reflect on that? >> one of the great statesman of the 20th century, right there along gandhi and churchill and others. he was a man of peace. he was a man of reconciliation. the lessons we learned from mandela would be, first of all, leaders absorb the pain. this is an important point. when you're in a conflict and you hit me, then i hit you. you hit me and i hit you and pretty soon we're both blind, eye for an eye, that old saying. at some point in a crisis, one side has to say, okay, you got the last shot. i'm not going to get even. when mandela was elected, he could have gotten even. he now had the power. he could have retaliated. he could have gotten revenge. he could have done all kinds of the things to the people who did him evil, all those years he was in prison, things like that. but he didn't. and great leaders absorb the pain. and they stop fixing the blame and start fixing the problem. that's an important thing. >> you look great. >> thanks. i'm working on it. i actually looked greater before matt
is not a racist, nelson mandela is not a racist. we know this from their work. this guy has a track record. "lonesome death," "in the wind." "hurricane." human dignity. it's threaded throughout the fabric of who he is as an artist. this whole thing just seems insane. i'm saying that with all due respect to whatever pain the people are bringing this charge are feeling. >> jeff, dylan was in paris to receive the legion of honor award when he was charged. the government is not trying to fine him. they're apparently just looking for an apology. if you were his legal adviser, would you tell him to give one? >> you know, bob dylan operates by his own rules. he is a truly great man. i don't think there is any dispute about that. he is a major cultural figure in american history and he has been on the right side of all these issues. it is possible that what he said was misinterpreted. i think it would be a good thing for him to explain what he meant. but certainly the government should not the be involved in punishing him, fining him in any way. it would be a good idea for him to talk about these
to vote for an extension of unemployment benefits. congressman nelson knows this well. have you a culture in the house -- i'm not sure this would pass the house. maybe he's privy to figures i'm not. have you a culture and we're talking about it before the show where americans are aspirational and you really have to make a sale to them a political culture, so much about food stamps, some realistic, some wildly unrealistic in terms of the way the real economy works. i think you have a sales job that needs to be done nationally to get people who might be part of this. >> if you're pro business conservative i don't understand why you're not from supports. when workers move between companies over the course of years, benefits should move with them. whether unemployment, health care, pensions, we've got to fix out a way to let workers go where their best use is and companies ought to appreciate that also. >> congressman, the republican party has been spinning its wheels on a number of issues. on the question of poverty and mobility, they have offered no practical solutions to the question the p
tribute to nelson mandela today. through his fierce dignity and unbending will to sacrifice his own freedom for the freedom of others i moved all of us. he embodied the promise that human beings and countries can change for the better. his commitment to transfer power and reconcile those who jailed him set an example for all to aspire to, whether in the lives of nations or in our own personal lives. >>> i promised you the president of the united states. and he's here. let's play "hardball." >> it's my honor to introduce the president of the united states. [ applause ] >> well, thank you, mr. president. >> it's good to see you. >> so what brought you to "hardball"? >> american university. [cheers and applause] >> "hardball" was just an excuse to hang out with these fine, young people. i've had just wonderful experiences here. first time i spoke here, actually, was when i was running for the presidency. and ted kennedy announced his endorsement here. obviously he was an incredible friend and spoke in here about immigration. so i just have a wonderful interaction with the young people
